Its about time we get a new East Coast repping track, especially since everything’s about the South — especially Atlanta — these days. A$AP Ferg attempts to fill that void with the aptly-titled “East Coast.” The beat is not quite New York boom-bap but it retains the style’s slow stride and swagger. Its truest marker of east side authenticity, however, is Remy Ma.
Thank god Remy has found more to say because we were all missing sorrowfully the boss-ass queen of NYC. In typical fashion she slides in snickering, “You fake bitches need to woman up / You a wack bit / You a rat bitch / And I’m that bitch, just to sum it up.” What more can you want from the femme fatale rap royalty? She doesn’t care and neither does A$AP. As far as this track is concerned, he might as well be Mr. East Coast.
